I still love Tamagotchi and I always will. My very first one (which I still have) is purple with the pink zig-zag border. I meant to make that color for my cake, but I opened up my bucket of fondant to see that it was blue! So I had to improvise. :)
I wanted to save this cake, and not eat it, so I made it from a "cake dummy", which is foam, covered and decorated as you would decorate a real - baked cake. If you follow my instructions, the only thing you have to sub out would be the Styrofoam for real cake, layer it and carve it with a serrated knife to your tama-shape!
This Tamagotchi Cake features blue and green fondant, starburst buttons, a sugar glass screen, backed by airbrushed rice paper and the character and functions were hand-drawn with an edible ink. (Ball chain is real, so don't eat it.) This thing makes me want to hoist it over my shoulder and play those cute beeping noises to rep my generation. (I don't have a boombox.)
